Adult Programs

Programs specifically designed for senior adults at the Historic Oxford One-room Schoolhouse have been very successful. Your group will be delighted to see the school and hear about its restoration process. They can learn about life in a rural one-room school district around the turn of the century or share their educational memories, or reminisce about the "good old days".

Schedule a fun and educational program year-round, any day of the week.

  • During the restoration of the school, heating and air-conditioning were added so your group will be comfortable any time of the year.
  • Electric lights allow us to present evening programs.
  • Presentations can be tailored to your group's interests on topics such as restoration, antiques, women's' studies and education history.
  • The school can comfortably seat a maximum of 24 adults in antique school desks.
  • A costumed docent will conduct your program.
  • Adult programs are offered at a low fee of only $2 per person.
